Happy to spread the good vibes of FNLROM at the ROM this weekend! Thank you to the Royal Ontario Museum for the hook up! I would like to give my one of my readers a double pass to FNLROM on Oct 12/18. Here’s what you get! All you need to do is tell me why you want to go and I’ll hook you up!
Yassin Alsalman, known by the artist moniker Narcy (formerly The Narcisyst), is an Iraqi-Canadian musician and multimedia artist.. As a former member of the group Euphrates, he is considered a pioneer of Arab hip-hop. In 2017, Narcy’s directorial debut with indigenous electronic group Tribe Called Red featuring Yasiin Bey (aka Mos Def) earned a Juno Nomination for Best Music Video and won the MMVA Video of the Year. He has directed the Talib Kweli feat. Anderson Paak video “Travelling Light” and filmed with Kaytranada, Jay Electronica, Dave Chappelle, and Spike Lee.
An accomplished vocalist, DJ, and violinist. Her playful style and funk-pop beats have landed her features in Noisey, Huffington Post, and Complex, with multiple singles charting on Hype Machine. Maya’s live show has been billed as “explosive, energetic, & unshakeable fun”, bringing the dance party to audiences around the world. Maya Killtron’s highly anticipated full length solo record, Never Dance Alone, is set for release in 2019.
DJ Mix N Match
Scratching, blending and cutting his way through sets, Dj Mix N Match brings a level of unparalleled energy and showmanship to his performances that set him apart from the pack. Combining the latest hits from a number of genres like hip hop, house, RnB and top 40, his crowd-pleasing sounds have landed him a weekly residency at Bloke Nightclub in Toronto and a monthly residency at Moomba Theatre in Montreal. While he’s garnered recognition for his regular live-to-air hits on the popular radio station Z103.5, DJ Mix and Match’s live acts are the biggest draw. He has opened for heavy hitters like Drake, Future, French Montana, Zeds Dead and Diplo, to name a few.
